Something old is new again.
Walker’s Point is said to be one of the few remaining well-preserved neighborhoods in Milwaukee, WI. This historic district lies just south of downtown, showcasing its architectural roots through Greek revival, Federal and Italianate-style single family homes, and warehouse space dating back to the mid-1800s. Today, this diverse working class neighborhood has some of the “city’s best nightclubs alongside award-winning restaurants and locally-made artisan food products.”
A direct reflection of its historic, yet trendsetting locale, Milwaukee’s first mass timber building, Timber Lofts, is an adaptive reuse project that combines a 130-year-old warehouse renovation with new construction in an adjacent parcel. The two structures unite to create a 60-unit multi-family complex with ground-floor retail, walking distance to nearby amenities.
